  • Throughout the summer of 2006, the Village of Wheeling alleged they received numerous odor complaints emanating from Evanger's production of dog and cat food. The Village issued citations to Evanger's on August 24, 2006, for violating several ordinances. The citations alleged: failure to provide tight-fitting garbage can lids, containers of food and waste not covered with tight fitting lids, failure to provide approved containers, food waste held in unapproved containers, failure to remove refuse, accumulation of refuse stored on exterior property, and failure to abate stagnant water accumulated on exterior property.

    A hearing was held on September 12, 2006, which Evanger's failed to attend. The court entered an order finding in favor of the Village and finding Evanger's in default. The court ordered Evanger's to pay the Village a find of $168,000. The fine was comprised of $500 a day for 84 days for each violation, which amounted to $42,000 per violation, times the four violations alleged. Subsequently, Evanger's filed a motion to vacate the default judgment. The court continued the motion.

    The Village filed a four- count second amended complaint on January 29, 2007. At the next several hearings, the court continued the motion to vacate. On March 14, 2008, the court entered an order in which it vacated the default judgment, placed Evanger's on supervision and ordered Evanger's to pay restitution.
    Subsequently, the village filed a petition to revoke the court's order of supervision. The petition alleged that Evanger's had failed to comply with the terms of the supervision because it had permitted waste materials to accumulate on the property. Upon remand, the Village filed a motion for summary judgment, which the trial court granted.

    The court's September 19, 2011, order provided that: (1) judgment was entered on counts I and II, and counts III and IV were voluntarily dismissed; (2) a fine totaling $316,500 was imposed on Evanger's ($250 per day 633 days for counts I and II); (3) Evanger's motion to strike Serena Fried's affidavit was denied; and (4) Evanger's $168,000 deposit with the clerk of the court was to be turned over to the Village.

    On February 28, 2013 The Food and Drug Administration completed an evaluation of the firms corrective actions in response to the Warning Letter (CHI-12-11) dated May 5, 2011. Based on the evaluation it appears that Evanger's Dog and Cat Food Company addressed the violation(s) contained in the May 5, 2011 Warning Letter. Future FDA inspections and regulatory activities will further assess the adequacy and sustainability of the corrections. The Food and Drug Administration expects Evanger's Dog and Cat Food Company to maintain compliance and will continue to monitor their state of compliance.
